WE PROMISED  10 – 7  MADE THE GRADE!


There are several decisions to be made in the choice of a SUPER SHOT. The fundamental rules of FOCUS FORCE are what the Kids With Cameras call CAMERA CLUES are; Correct HOLD of the camera, Correct DISTANCE, Correct Light and Correct FOCUS, then there’s the last CORRECT  COMPOSITION. Composition is the keynote to a SUPER SHOT. Any of the above can be broken other than COMPOSITION, and still gain the accolades. But, without the latter you are left at the starting post. In the second workshop you will learn all the rules, and how to make them work to your advantage.

 Remember a SUPER SHOT is what you have seen through the camera lens or screen, and what it has captured inside. In other words once the image has been taken, you cannot  alter it on the computer screen or the camera. In other words you can not use Photoshop or any other process to change the original. This includes the cropping of the image.

IT WAS DISAPPOINTING that only one of those who has her photo images shown here was able to attend a short workshop at the FAIRFIELD BOATHOUSE on Sunday, June 9. Hopefully, you may see some of her results in the near future.

About focusfor

The FOCUS FORCE photographic workshop program for Kids With Cameras is based in Melbourne, Australia. The projects have gone beyond the Victorian borders, into New South Wales, and Tasmania.Through others including a backpacker it has been provided to children in Thailand, and a teacher in Portugal has inspired children there as well. Apart, from the fun of learning about the camera and developing the skill of taking better photos; the best of which are raised to the status of SUPER SHOTS,the works have been mounted as collections under the banner of the FOCUS FORCE FRIENDSHIP EXHIBITIONS, and sent as gifts of friendship and goodwill to the United States, Italy, Japan, China - others are still being worked on. The program enrciches the children's knowledge, and as a side benefit makes them more aware of their own surroundings,and all that is to value where they live. Then comes the delight of being achievers, and having their self esteem boosted by their successes.The term "kids with cameras" was first used by the program's forerunner; CLICKER - the "club for kids with cameras", and dates back to the mid 1980's. The name change came about as wanting to be more appropriate to the older student group that the program now works with.
